Public law in Regional Bar

Philip Rule is the key name to note in public law matters at No5 Barristers Chambers. One key area of his is prison law: in R (Knights) v Parole Board, he represented an prisoner who had completed the tariff of his indefinite sentence for public protection (IPP) in a challenge to the Parole Board's refusal to defer a hearing until he had completed a sex offender rehabilitation programme, or to grant him an oral hearing.
